Hall of Fame-regain no 1

Paradoxically, Federer's current ranking situation can help him regain the top spot in the ranking.
The two players ahead of him—Novak Djokovic and Rafael Nadal—have a lot of points to defend, especially leading into the U.S. Open.
If he does capture another major and performs well on other Masters 1000, Federer could become the No.1 player in the world again within the next couple of years.
